Best Quadcopter For Filming
Posted on December 23 2015
Drones have the power to capture stunning images and videos otherwise impossible to obtain. From insane shots of surfers riding breaking waves to unparalleled footage of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro to breathtaking views of the Serengeti and beyond, quadcopters are dream tools for photographers and videographers. So which is the very best quadcopter for filming?
The current answer is quite possibly the Inspire 1 from renowned drone brand DJI. Featuring the manufacturer’s most advanced technology to date, the Inspire 1 “empowers you to create the unforgettable.” Let’s take a look at why this quadcopter rocks:
Created with sturdy, strong carbon fiber arms that easily lift out of the way when filming, you’ll enjoy a “full, unrestricted 360-degree view of the world” when you operate the Inspire 1. Forget drones where the arms are visible when filming certain ways--the DJI Inspire 1 makes creating awe-inspiring shots easy.
What separates this drone from others is the 4K camera. It allows you to shoot 4K video and capture 12 megapixel photos thanks to a lens made with “nine different elements.” Such elements include Adobe DNG Raw support for optimal power and an aspherical element for pristine clarity.
Vision Positioning System
Have you experienced trouble flying drones indoors? The Inspire 1 has taken care of that! The quadcopter’s vision positioning system offers accurate position holding “even when GPS is unavailable.” Sensors indicate location and altitude while the drone’s legs lower automatically when landing.
Comprehensive Mobile App
The quadcopter’s full-featured app provides total control of both the flight system and the camera, including manual camera control, auto takeoff, flight telemetry, and landing. All are a “tap away” with the app. DJI drone also promises more app features and other nifty things “soon.”
